Sam Flegal has been fascinated by the strange and the macabre from a very young age. Fortunately for his budding morbid creativity, he was raised in a household that encouraged his interest in all things weird—Sam’s father was a magician and his mother a ventriloquist and clown.
In December 2003 Sam graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, released out into the world to pursue his own strange art. Since that time Sam has vigorously summoned the dark creatures of his mind to make the unreal, tangible and the imagined, concrete.
As an illustrator for both book covers and games, Sam specializes in painting strange scenes of epic fantasy and graphic horror. He describes his art as “stylized realism,” portraying fantastical things in a comic book- like graphic manner, but with an eye towards real life. Sam’s preferred medium is oil paint.
Sam also uses his strange imagination to help others realize their dreams of undeath through the power of Zombie Portraits. Like a caricature from a dark carnival, Sam takes the living and brings out their inner dead.
